Unfortunately no simulation or rendering components of SolidWorks will take advantage of GPU resources to speed calculations currently. I know there have been enhancement request for this function however i have not heard on any plans for this as of yet, someone from solidworks may be able to advise if there are any.
As far as flow simulation goes you can use a remote solver so you could asign a task to another PC but it is all CPU based
For rendering you can use network rendering as of SolidWorks 2013, but again this is all CPU based, these systems do not need a license of solidworks, just a small piece of software call the SolidWorks Network Render Client.
Simualtion is also all CPU based for the calculations
Probably not the answer you were after but that is the current state.
Thank Alan for Your time.
Now how i can understand this:
nvidia link accessible from solidwork's portal.
Do You think nvidia is lying and dassault is thinking:"silence is golden"?
Can't watch the YouTube video at work, but on that Nvidia page, if you click on the SW tab then the subsequent page makes no mention of Maximus or Tesla being usable in SW.
Maybe i'm wooden but couldn't follow Your directions.
Let me explain how did it.
I detected the Tesla isn't working under SW. I did not want to submerge into CUDA and OpenCL programming. I found NVidia's Maximus solution at link:
On this page the You can read features of Tesla cards with maximus utility in rendering and simulation.
If followed on the bottom of this page
If You click link Manufacturing ( above the picture of landing gears)
You can read some tests. At the middle of page "Engineering analysis and DESIGN" the SW is noticed.
(at the most bottom) You can find under industry application, link manufacturing
and after click on it You can see which application is gpu accelerated. With picture of SW.
Probably i did a mistake, now You know how i did it.
Thank for Your attention:Zoltan
Reading through the links and it certainly doesn't make it clear. However, I interpret this:
Engineering analysis and DESIGN
With Maximus technology, you can perform simultaneous structural or fluid dynamics analysis with applications such as ANSYS while running your design application, including SolidWorks and PTC Creo.
...as that you can run the Tesla card to solve the ANSYS problem, while using the Quadro card just to run SolidWorks (but not simulations in SolidWorks).
Similarly, on the Industry Applications page, it's a general mention of what products can use Quadro cards and/OR Maximus technology. Clicking on the SolidWorks link on this page gives more details on SolidWorks' usage, but never mentions being able to use Maximus/Tesla in SW. Maximus is only mentioned in the context of Bunkspeed.
It is all written very poorly though, I hope you didn't spend all the money on a Tesla card *just* for SolidWorks!
